Synopsis

Venice. A small Muslim community is deprived of its place of worship, which is evicted by the police to make way for a beauty salon run by a Turkish-French woman with progressive ideas. A young imam of Afghan origin arrives to help the group, composed among others of a Kurdish refugee and a Venetian in conflict with Western society: he will guide them, even with ethically dubious tactics, in the reconquest of their mosque.
